How much does it cost? Do I need an attorney?
There is no fee for filing for an order of protection in Wyoming and you do not need an attorney. However, you may want to hire an attorney, especially if the abuser has one. If you have an attorney, the judge may order the abuser to pay reasonable attorney’s fees – whether the attorney is court appointed or hired by you.1
If you cannot find a lawyer, you may wish to have someone from a domestic violence agency in your area go with you. You can find information for help in your area on our WY Places that Help page.
